49ers on NBCS took to to social media platform ‘X’ and shared a snippet from the presser. Captioning it as “I failed to put our team in position to [score touchdowns].” Brock takes full accountability for the offense’s struggles.” Speaking about how the 49ers ‘shot themselves in the foot with penalties and operations, the QB could be heard saying, “I gotta be better in terms of leading the guys and handling the huddle.”
